What exactly did you expect me to understand?
is that accepting me for who I am.
Cracking racist jokes expecting me not to be offended
`cause you consider yourself my friend.
So in my insecurity
I pretended to be amused by your bigotry
Came here when I was two years old
Grew up in a small town
people whispered behind my back
looking me up and down
always being abused a potential criminal
I`m constantly reminded of the difference between me and you
it doesn`t hurt as much as it used too
so I`ve learned to respect myself
I`ve learned to trust again
And not to feel ashamed
Of where I`m from or who I am
All my life
I`ve been reminded that I don`t belong here!
